    Hello All,

    I have been offered a Tax Auditor position with NC Department of Revenue. Before taking the position, I would like to hear reviews about Tax Auditor role and the department (work environment). Therefore if anyone currently working as tax auditor or previously worked as tax auditor could share their reviews such as likes and dislikes or anything you think I should know before taking the position?

    Good luck! I am a retired NC employee and know many who are retired from Revenue. All were very happy with their careers but they did work very hard. Never a dull moment. The pay starts low but the benefits are excellent. I worked with several NCDOR retirees at Wake County as a business auditor – we were are all adding to our state retirement by putting in county time. Stay until you are vested then go to work for a Ryan or stay the 30 years. State of NC is a great employer but legislature can be stingy with raises.

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?

    How long you have to stay to vested ? DOR employees work 40 hours a week or longer hours? Are there advancement opportunities within the department? How about opportunities going from state to industry?

    When I retired vesting was 5 years to be eligible to retire but you have to work 20-30 years to fully retire. To vest in your health insurance you have to work a minimum of 10 years up to20. You may have to work overtime but most folks work 40 hours plus lots of holidays and earned sick and vacation time. I worked in government most of my life and loved it. You can also look at IRS. Ryan is a private employer that NCDOR employees work for when they leave. Don’t accept a job without answers to these questions. They will answer these questions at DOR and show you the full benefit package and total compensation value. Check out NC Retirement too. I read your other post and it looks like you have a good job now. There are lots of other jobs at DOR if you decide auditor is not for you. Are you a CPA? The government needs good accountants and public service is very satisfying. DOR audit jobs exist around the state and the country too so there are opportunities outside if Raleigh.
    Where did you go to school? I went to Appalachian and lived in Raleigh for many many years. Now Colorado – NCDOR has auditors based in Denver too.

    I checked and you are right about the benefits. I am not a CPA. I went to school in Chicago and moved NC few years ago. I have looked some accountant positions as well in the past, but I did not fit the requirement criteria. I could not find Ryan on google. Can you please send me their link? I am interested in seeing who they are and what they do.
